Next week, I'll be in Madrid to spin some records at a party thrown by the fine folks from Vampisoul Records. I can't wait to play out my latest finds. For all of you who can't make it there, here's my newest mix with some of the records I found on my trip to Ghana.
I guess most of you already know the fabulous 2 Ghana Soundz compilations. I made an effort to avoid using any tracks that were included on those. If you like what you hear on this mix and for some reason don't already own Ghana Soundz 1&2, do yourself a favor and support a really cool record label as well as the people behind this great music by surfing over to Soundway Records and ordering these two or any other of their fantastic releases. Downloads from the internet should never be a substitute for purchasing legitimate reissues on CD or Vinyl.
All artists or bands on this mix are from Ghana except the Apostles who were a Nigerian band. Click on the image to listen:
